According to Pam Duarte, Headmaster at Logos Christian Academy, the Logos board made the decision to go into a full school quarantine for the next 2 weeks, starting Monday, September 20-October 1st.
"It was a difficult decision as we know it impacts our families," said Duarte. "We had already closed down 4 classrooms for a quarantine period previously due to Covid - which is half our campus."
She said there have been 35+ kids out sick with various things since school started - with a student population of 92. In addition, this week, the Logos staff started becoming ill, and there have been additional reports of family exposures.
"Our hope is that the full closure for two weeks will give time for the majority of the illnesses to cycle through and we can prevent further closure as the year progresses. We are extremely grateful for our families' supportive response and the help that many of our volunteers have provided this week in lieu of staff absences."
